Re: Question about updating the firmware on the DM42 calc.

I think whichever state file was last saved or loaded before an update gets reloaded automatically after an update. The STATE.f42 file that has been saved is automatically loaded after an update. State files saved with other names are NOT loaded. That doesn't seem to agree with the source code. Fro...

Re: QuickRef HTML en Français

My browser translated the French posts to English automatically. It even translated the filenames in the posts, so that H E L P _ f r . z i p appeared as H E L P _ e n . z i p . (I have attempted to flummox that in the reverse direction for this post.) My browser offered me the option to translate,...

Re: DM42 screen has broken

Wow, that's scary. :o I'll be more careful when handling mine, although where it currently resides there is a soft padded carpet for it to fall on. Is the ribbon connector part of the screen assembly ? I've had problems with the keyboard faceplate separating from the calculator body on my DM15L, and...

Re: how to use mort.raw?

oh, what is DUE variable? It is a setting to determine if payments are to be made at the end of a payment period (arrears), in which case DUE=0, or if they are made at the beginning of a payment period when due, in which case DUE=1. When payments are made when due, they are lower, since no interest...

Re: how to use mort.raw?

I tried the program, and it works for me. I assume that your .03 entry is for the interest . Try entering 0 for [DUE]. Using your values and pushing [PMT] twice, I get the result 45.80379418 in the X-register, which agrees with my HP 12C. That worked for me. The having to push PMT twice is odd to m...
